The UNCDF Agritech Challenge is enabling potential improvement in financial health by inviting applications from innovators to help co-create and/or adapt their solutions for smallholders farmers in the following seven countries: Kenya, Malawi, Uganda, Zambia in Africa and India, Indonesia, Malaysia in Asia.

A crucial common challenge for smallholder farmers is to improve their individual & household financial health, which enables them to have better financial security, control and freedom. The following key challenges have been identified for smallholder farmers:

  1. Low Productivity – Access to new technology and innovations
  2. Climate Risk – Resilience against climate change and natural hazards
  3. Inefficient Supply Chains – Reduce wastage and enhance market & pricing transparency

This Programme invites applications from start-ups with solutions that are addressing at least one of the three above mentioned challenges.

These key challenges are further detailed in documents available for download on the right side of this page, along with an FAQ and country snapshots for the Africa and Asia regions.
